All I can say is, "YUM!" My boyfriend and I both savored every bite of this mouthwatering dish! The flavors from the onions, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, ground beef and brown sugar blended together so deliciously. In fact, this sauce reminded me of the sauce at one of my favorite restaurants, and now I'm thinking that their secret ingredient may just be brown sugar! It added a perfect hint of sweetness to the sauce. And I loved that the diced tomatoes made the sauce nice and chunky. Not only was this recipe super tasty, it was incredibly quick and easy to make; I needed just one pan for the pasta and my trusty skillet took care of the sauce! We had enough left over for lunch the next day, and it was just as delicious re-heated. What a hearty, go-to recipe. I can't wait to make it again!

A comfort food classic! The fresh tomato taste of this sauce was a refreshing change to the jar spaghetti sauce that I typically use. My family loved it.
